PODCAST: An interview with Marlene Laruelle on Russian nationalism

Q: Is Vladimir Putin a Russian nationalist?

A: I think it’s a mistake to consider Putin a nationalist and here there’s also the same confusion with authoritarianism and being aggressive in foreign policy. So you always have this confusion when you use nationalist as a synonym for being an authoritarian leader and having foreign policy the west considers aggressive.
